Employment

In today's legal environment of state and federal mandates and regulation, both large and small companies deal with compliance issues arising from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and many other specialized laws affecting employers. At Johnson Turner, we can counsel you on what your business is obligated to do under state and federal laws. We can also represent your business in lawsuits not only to defend against discrimination claims, but also others including wage and hour litigation, wrongful termination, and covenants not to compete. We also have experience guiding employers through investigations lodged by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR), and appearing before the administrative agencies that oversee complaints of alleged employment law violations. 

Here are some examples of the employment law services we provide:

  • Employment agreements

  • Employee handbooks

  • Compliance with Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

  • Compliance with Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

  • Compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

  • Wrongful termination

  • Age discrimination

  • Disability discrimination

  • Race and sex discrimination

  • Sexual harassment

  • Human resources and personnel management

  • Compliance with labor-related state laws and regulations

 

Education

 

Education law involves a diverse range of issues from representing children with poor access to education to special education law to education reform. American laws mandate that every child be given the opportunity to an education.

 

Each state has its own education system, and as a result, laws regarding the management of schools, teachers, and funding for public schools vary among different states. However, all American public education systems are overseen by the federal government through the U.S. Department of Education.

Education law is an ever-evolving area of law. With oversight at both the federal and state level, education lawyers must be up to speed on a broad range of issues. At Johnson Turner, our lawyers provide local school boards and other schools the specialized attention this area of practice requires. As members of the Florida School Board Attorneys Association, our lawyers stay up-to-date on the issues facing our education system, attending conferences and other continuing legal education to ensure compliance with both U.S. Department of Education and the Florida Department of Education laws, guidelines, and policies.

Our attorneys serve as general counsel handling all day-to-day legal matters, and act as litigation and appellate counsel in all aspects of litigation lodged against our clients or necessarily initiated by our clients. Our firm handles all aspects of school governance, Sunshine Law issues, Public Records issues, student issues, employment issues, charter school issues, collective bargaining, procurement, drafting/negotiating contracts, and policy development under both federal and state laws and regulations.

 

Personal Injury

Our attorneys take pride in aggressively and thoroughly litigating personal injury claims, and prevailing on claims by the use of hard work and diligence. We represent people who are injured or killed as the result of the negligence of others on a contingency fee basis. This means that our legal services cost you nothing unless we are able to secure a settlement or verdict for you.

Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of serious injuries, but people are also injured by golf carts, the neglect of property owners who fail to keep their property reasonably safe for others. If you are injured in an accident due to the negligence of another, Johnson Turner can help you receive compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages.

In addition, if you are seriously hurt, you should never accept a settlement without first speaking to an attorney. Let us deal with the insurance company and negligent party while you concentrate on recovery.
